Stunning Oversized Abstract Triptych
 from New York, NY,  Nov 27, 2012

Ok, so I wanted to get myself a special birthday gift that I (and my house guests) would enjoy for years to come, and since I am an art lover, I decided to splurge and buy something that would be a nice addition to our (modern) apartment decor. My husband and I love abstract art, and when I saw this I knew it was something I would love to have (and assumed hubby would like it too), but I bought it without consulting him. After reading all the positive reviews here, I was ready to be “amazed” at it’s beauty. Well, I was so excited when the art was delivered (approx. a week after ordering) that I couldn’t wait to open it up and prepare to be wow’ed! Let me just say, I was NOT disappointed! This large (over-sized) triptych painting really delivers the goods... The “WOW” factor will be a conversation starter for sure!! The size is the first thing that people will notice, I think... The colors are a bit brighter that the photos seem to portray on my monitor (for instance there’s a reddish/orange area on the lower part of the 3rd piece, the one with the signature on it) that I didn’t really notice in the photos, but is more than fine by me - I love that color. Again, as others have mentioned, the piece is very similar but not “exactly” what is displayed online as they are each hand painted individually. One thing I think the website should mention is the depth of the pieces - they are boxy canvases (about 1.5” or so depth-wise) and are painted around the sides. LOVE THAT!! I couldn’t really tell from the photos that they are deep canvases and it wasn’t mentioned at all in the dimensions. The painting is definitely dynamic and gives off a real sense of “movement” with the black & white drips across all 3 panels. Almost reminds me of a symphony or something, can’t really explain it. They do make the room feel “warmer”... Also, love the texture --yes, the brush strokes are a bit large, but I can forgive that, considering the beauty of it all... There definitely was an odor upon first opening them up, but I left the window open for a while and it seems to have already dissipated somewhat and it’s only been a few hours. I expect it will go away altogether after a few days. I have already hung them up on the wall in our living room to see how they look on our walls and I can’t stop looking at it!! BTW, I must mention that none of the stretcher bars on mine were warped - all 4 corners of each panel hang flush against the wall. I feel I should mention this as others have complained about that. Overall this is Simply Stunning Artwork and I love my birthday gift to myself! Thanks so much, O!

  • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Coloars are perhaps a tiny bit brighter in real life
  • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent quality - love the boxy deep canvas
  • How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate, but should mention these are "deep 1.5" canvases
